The Adenohypophysis is a complementary gland located in the anterior region of the pituitary, with respect to a coordinate axis in which the pituitary is in a superior position, it receives this prefix given its origin, and also because it is closely related to hormones secreted by the pituitary. The importance in human development of the hormones secreted by the adenohypophysis is such that they represent a complex study of their functions, the main one being the production of Somatotropin, better known as growth hormone, this hormone, coming from cells construction companies, is responsible for the lengthening, adaptation, reinforcement and complexion of muscles, bones and organs in a rigorous relationship with time and important aspects such as diet and exercise.

In the case of women, in addition to the complete set of hormones for the development of the body, the Adenohypophysis secretes Prolactin, this exudate is sent directly to the mammary glands of the female and begins with the production of natural dairy which will be administered to a future offspring, conceived by sexual reproduction. It should be noted that the production of prolactin begins just at the moment that pregnancy begins, the presence of fluid in the breasts in the time that is not foreseen could be caused by serious defects in the Adenohypophysis gland. It is also important to note that through the segregation of prolactin, crucial genetic data is included so that the little offspring receives them through food.

Similarly, if the Adenohypophysis secretes inadequate amounts of Somatotropin, they could cause gigantism or dwarfism, as the case may be, as well as body deformity problems. An eventual disincorporation of the Adenohypophysis from its functions could bring serious consequences to the health of the human being.

The Adenohypophysis also secretes and regulates hormones that stimulate various functions of the body, such as the hair follicle-stimulating hormone, in this way the appearance of hair and hair on the skin is controlled. It also complements the functions performed by the thyroid with the secretion of thyrotropin, which helps the proper functioning of the thyroid.
